The Monastery of St. Paul probably dates to the fifth century and was founded in memory of one of Egypt's greatest saints, who is said to have lived in a cave over which it was built for a period of some eighty years. St. Antony's Monastery, which lies at the foot of Al-Qalzam Mountain near Al Zaafarana, was founded in 356 AD just after the saints death and is the oldest active monastery in the world.The Monastery has exceptional wall paintings of holy knights in bright colors and the hermit founders of the monastery in subdued colors and icons.There is also a library with over 1,700 handwritten manuscripts. If you’re at all interested in Egypt’s lengthy Christian history, both monasteries make for fascinating and inspiring visits, and the surrounding desert scenery is simply breathtaking.
